    Default I, too, feel or I too feel

    1) I, too, feel the same.

    2) I too feel the same.

    Which one is correct? I see both are being used.

    Default Re: I, too, feel or I too feel

    It seems a little pointless to use "too" at all. The fact that you are saying "feel the same" means that you must be stating that you are feeling an emotion which is also being felt by someone else.

    I feel the same.

    You might be able to use it if you were the third person to state their feelings. In the following dialogue, you are person C.

    A: I feel really sad about his death.
    B: I feel the same.
    C: I, too, feel the same.
    or
    C: I feel the same too.

    You are saying "too" to indicate that you are speaking in addition to person B.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Default Re: I, too, feel or I too feel

    When the word "too" is used to indicate "also" I can't think of any time where it is not offset by a comma.
